    If anyone is in the market for a new bike computer, then Chrisfl and I have the Hammerhead unit.

    Today i got a black friday email offer enabling the purchase for knock-down price of $199 (which is cheaper than the kickstarter price I paid 18 months ago).

    notable highlights include: Android based and not a Garmin.

    If interested PM me I will provide the discount code.

    What is a 'cycle computer'?

  3. Is that for the Karoo? Have you used it and what do you reckon?

    If I didn't get already get the 1030 earlier this year I would definitely be interested.

    What is its battery life like?

    If using the screen / mapping / following directions, I reckon it uses about 10% / hour.

    If screen is off and you're just using it to collect stats for strava etc... it uses <5%/hr.

    its very good.

    Notable lowlights include one of them running out of battery and sending us the wrong steep and rutted way down then back up Lammer Law at the beginning of September.

    @iwrats It's like a trundle wheel, but it counts its clicks all by itself and uses an imaginary wheel which rolls on the intangible surface of the electromagnetic aether.

    @wingpig that was entirely operator error, as said operator wasn't paying attention to the map. Classic IDtenT

    the Hammerhead was correct/fine/fully charged, just unconsulted.

    IDtenT? Is that like PICNIC? (Problem In Chair, Not In Computer...)

    "It's like a trundle wheel, but it counts its clicks all by itself and uses an imaginary wheel which rolls on the intangible surface of the electromagnetic aether."

    How does that compare to a micrometer?

    Proper Vernier manual micrometer or modern-fangled digital?

    Rollable but not tangible. My kinda surface.

    "Proper Vernier manual micrometer or modern-fangled digital?"

    Either and it can be African or European too.

    @Iain. Thanks for the info and voucher code. Mrs biketrain has agreed to buy a Karoo for my Christmas.

    @IainMcR

    Do you think that voucher code could still work?

    Or was it for black Friday only?

    I was just having a very similar thought.

    Nope, just tried it.

    Top tip - don't drop it. They do not bounce and they dont repair them. Had to buy a replacement unit.

    @biketrain - review pls.

    @Neddie - Have you tried 'KAROOWELCOME' as a voucher code?

    I have just been in contact with Hammerhead, apparently it can give a $50 discount.

    I've dropped mine twice now, and it keeps on running!

    Last update has added live tracking.

    I dropped my Garmin which wasn't terminal despite a cracked screen. However taking it out in the rain with a cracked screen appears to have been.

    Hammerhead offering trade-ins (not clear if the traded-in device actually has to work or not AFAICS but presumably it does)

    https://www.uk.hammerhead.io/pages/trade-in-trade-up/

    Not sure about the overall environmental friendliness of it as the trade-ins 'will be deconstructed and recycled to the fullest extent possible'

    I saw "up to £125" off and realised not for me, bit like when you see a Rettie board outside a house, or have to ask the price of something.
